Laptop with fliers’ data found
The company that runs an airport security pre-screening program said Tuesday that it had found a laptop containing the personal information of 33,000 people more than a week after it apparently went missing.
The Transportation Security Administration suspended new enrollments to the program, known as Clear, after the unencrypted computer was reported stolen.
Officials with Verified Identity Pass Inc., which operates the Clear program, said the laptop was found Tuesday morning in the same office where it supposedly had gone missing.
The program allows passengers to pay to use special fast lanes to avoid long lines at airport security checkpoints. The laptop contained the personal information of applicants to the program.
